The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications for funding under the Fiscal Year 2020. The goal of this project is to conclude the NIC Veterans Compendium Project with one final publication that addresses the reentry process for justice-involved veterans.
The goal of this project is to identify and highlight agencies/systems that are demonstrating success with their reentry efforts for justice-involved veterans in a national publication that other agencies/systems can use as a guide for implementing veteran-specific efforts to improve reentry practices.
The anticipated project deliverables include:
1) In collaboration with NIC, select up to four sites to highlight in the national publication;
2) Conduct interviews onsite with key stakeholders that were instrumental with developing, planning, implementing, and sustaining veterans reentry programs within that jurisdiction;
3) While onsite, engage stakeholders and document through recorded interviews the lessons learned, successes, and challenges of implementing veterans reentry programming. Stakeholders may include, but are not limited to law enforcement agencies, correctional agencies, court systems [veterans treatment courts], prosecutors, pretrial and/or probation officers, and social services. The awardee is responsible for making and funding travel arrangements for onsite travel; and
4) Develop a 508-compliant report with professional graphic design that is in line with the previous NIC Veteran Compendium Project publications.
More details on the deliverables and other requirements can be found in the full solicitation.
Deadline. All applications are due to be submitted and in receipt of a successful validation message in Grants.gov by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on March 30, 2020. Late applications will not be considered.
